Philosophy and Religion Society

Welcome back everyone to another great Spring semester here at UNCW! Drop by next Wednesday to support PARS for our first Pizza Party Social event of the semester. Meet and greet the fine professors of UNCW's Philosophy and Religion Department and grab a bite to eat. Wednesday, Jan. 21st, 6:30 @ Bear Room 103. See you there!!

We are a club that was created at UNCW by students that is dedicated to the study of philosophy, religion and any other scholarly field. We meet bi-weekly in Bear Hall on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm. At our meetings we discuss scholarly topics from all fields of study, help tutor one another and create a social network to help each other enjoy "college life". We also sponsor/attend debates and from time to time even show up to debates that we are not invited to. We are a fun loving laid back group of people who have a love for the difficult questions in life that are hard to face.
